HI to all from the weasel!
Ok new here an just thought I'd say a little about me, I've been keeping fish for 30yrs. i got my frist tank at 10yrs of age. Like must I had the betta and learned what i though at the time tons. Then around a yr later I meet a guy who owened a LFS. I worked for him after school and on the weekends cleaning the shop. Then after 3yrs of cleaning the shop and him showing me wht he called jus the basics of fish keeping. I got my frist large tank. Are what I thought was a large tank at the time { 40g hex front } worked my butt off for a yr to save for that tank. LOL Learning alot in the shop and listening to old man carl. i found out that it wasn't enought to just put the fish in the tank ,clean it and fed it.
I found out about what went togeather and water changes andwter primes. By the time i was 16, I lost my dad and sister in a car wreak. So out of school and into a full time job with Carl { who had steped into the roll of dad. } I worked for Carl and did night school til I was 20. Then the big super pet store came to town and that was the end of Carls pets. Not a lot of people wanted the friendly service anymore. { times where a changing } So from the 10yrs with this great guy {and step in dad} I found out I was hooked on fish keeping.
It's now 20yrs later and I have my owe fish hatchery for Apistogrammas { 12 differnt species}, livebearers , german blue rams. Then there's my new found love of bettas yes my very frist fish has come back to be the 4th love of my life { behind my wife of 20yrs nd 3 kids } So the bettas back and have started the learning curve all over again. I have 24 tanks ranging from 250g,125g x2,85g,75g x 2,55g,20g x 7,10g x 10. 24 M bettas 1.5 to 2.5g tanks. 5 OHM { Over Half Moon }, 5 CT { crown tails } 10 HMPK { Half Moon plakats the ture fighter} If I posted my stock list I'd be here all day. I'll just give my new found love the Jagur or Jags. Got to love the killer fish.
So there's a lot about me and it's nice to be here hopfullly I'll be able to help and give some good advise on my end,As i'm also still learning i'll be here reading any thing I can find to keep that learning curve alive.

Doesn't get better than that!
